    Book Information

    Description

    Republican passions demonstrates the crucial role of family and friendship networks in the creation of the French Third Republic. Based on the family archives of Léon Laurent-Pichat, journalist, Deputy and Life Senator, this study paints a rich picture of republican intimacy, sociability and political activity during the Second Empire and early Third Republic. It explores republican friendships and family connections as men and women worked together for the cause. In republican circles, as the book illustrates, the intimate and political realms were not separate but deeply intertwined and interdependent.

    Reviews

    'Susan Foley's Republican Passions is a beautifully written reconstruction of the life of Léon Laurent-Pichat, a man at the heart of republican politics in second half of the nineteenth century. Based on a rich trove of archival materials, it demonstrates how the new political formations of the era were supported by personal ties, emotional dispositions and cultural practices and sheds new light on the origins of the Third Republic.'
    Sarah Horowitz, Professor of History, Washington and Lee University
